Oxygen

The doctors and nurses stroll out and line up in front of a microphone with Walter Reed Hospital as a backdrop. The doctors and nurses are all in white lab coats over green or blue scrubs. The ho...

end of sept

After a summer spent perfecting my impression of a giant land salmon, and pondering the significance of truth, beauty and wisdom out by the pool, I sit here now like Muammar Gaddafi, the once bro...


I sit around the Fortress of Chuckles, sipping a beer and listening to Doffen Dave (on Zoom) talk about the business that could have been but was lost mostly due to the fact that no one was very ...

Jumping strays

I have a little note keeping app on my phone. Who doesn’t? And I like to capture stray thoughts as they linger and I lounge around in bed or by the pool, sometimes out for a stroll. Sometimes I r...


If they ever name a street after me it’ll have to be either one way or a dead end. I live next to a police officer and he lives next to a parole officer. That makes me either a criminal, or the M...

the Pizzalater

I spend another weekend riding on the No Drama Llama, the Keep Cool Mule, no problem for an old Rodeo Clown like me, floating around in the pool on the No Fail Whale with a vodka drink nearby, I...


I order online and then go up to High St and picked up some essential oils, in this case they are a small bottle of 100%CBD oil and one of 50/50 mix of THC/CBD. I like oils. I like them a lot. Th...

troll treats

I tend to overdue it. Somedays more than others. I’m not going to write about that again. Clean up your act or just accept what you are. I can accept who I am. I am a reluctant member of society...

Snakes on the plain

I hate it when people tell me to stay safe. “Stay silly”, I want to say back. Filtration Nation — a good name for a water store I’m wasting my time. I stepped back from the stuff that I usual...

bubbling grey

Anyone who trips on the sidewalk can be a comic genius. Most of us miss this opportunity. Crustacean nation! A good name for a seafood place. Deception by omission is like aggression by passi...

Dog days

My mind is a little foggy, but the sky is cloudless, bird egg blue. If you sit and listen as I sometimes often do, the crow’s (or raven’s, I’m not really a bird expert) kaw kaw is always present...


1. For the reno, I take out the old countertop and sink from the accessory kitchen and put them in the back corner of our yard where I build up my junk that has to go to the dump. “You’re throwi...


Last week when I was working on the shed roof, a red fox ran through the backyard, middle of the afternoon. I’ve seen foxes in the neighbourhood for the past five years or so. I was sitting at th...

time for a change

Time changes always throw me a little out of whack, like living in a false reality, in a parallel universe, under an assumed name, in the witness protection program, with a new dog and a compact ...

Riding on the Burrito Donkey

There’s this facebook page that I sometimes go to. It’s called “you know you’re from (this stinking town)…”It a place for the old timers to post things for trips down memory lane together. It is ...

Captured bits

I read somewhere that it takes 17 days to form a habit. I also heard 21. Personally I don’t think it’s that easy. But it is not difficult either. You just want to have to do it, whatever it is. :...


The John Sandford early books are darker. Lucus was pretty much a vigilante, a womanizer and a poetry reader. (We like that dualism). The last book Neon Prey was more comical and had touches of E...


Before I go to the airport, I thought I would post these here. I’ve been cleaning up my files as I am never as organized as right before and right after a holiday. They are left over bits from la...

Leftover bits

I am never as organized as just before I leave on holiday and just after I get back. These are the times that I am ruthless with my time. There is a lesson to be learned in this. : I spend my tim...


I like to change the words in songs I know well. Just little things like changing I to he or she depending on who is singing. It’s juvenile, but it gives me a laugh. … There is not standardizati...

Fool’s gold

In Canada the fact that we have legalized weed and illegalized weapons is most evident when you watch downtrodden, somewhat lost but over-confident Canadians struggling to get by as featured extr...

ramblings

She’s driving a monkey-shit brown Charger with interior the colour of dehydrated urine. I’m in a white Honda Accord with a V6 engine. Stopped at the light, we both look over at each other. Smiles...

Around

Generally, I just need time and a destination and I’m happy. A purpose, no matter how paltry and some time, no matter how skimpy, a place no matter how peripheral and I’m good to go. I go out ear...

nubbins and nuggets

I’d like to set fire to the tent city in Victoria Park. They say they are homeless but I say they are just camping for free. When I meet a lady and I want to talk with her, I ask her her name. Wh...

clicks and ticks

I put the book down for a week and now I don’t know who anyone is. It is a story about robbery and revenge but it could be a story about government. All the characters are grifters and cheaters a...


Book Description

During the day, when a thought comes to me I write it down so I can maybe think about it later.
Sometimes, I will expand on that captured thought.
Sometimes, it will end up here, like a little orphan.
